    If you bid say a parking lot that will cost 600$ how much would the salt cost as far as a ratio is 500 pretty close or should there be a bigger difference between the two

    Using bulk salt with vbox spreaders we are about 60% of the plow price. We also plow a couple places that require 2 or more truck loads of salt, so we are a little more on those since we have to run back to our shop to reload and it disrupts the route.
